When necessary, cyclists are legally allowed to take the full lane. There are times when it is necessary for their safety, especially when they are passing parked cars and it isn't always clear if or when a car door might open into the cyclist's path of travel. Drivers are required to look before opening car doors and NOT open them until it is safe for them to do so.
